Wiper Motor for Sea Breeze

Hello All.

Although I've peeked in from time to time, this is my first post on any of these forums. For National owners, I imagine it is invaluable--we're all more-or-less out in the wildnerness now.

Has anybody out there had to replace a windshield wiper motor on a 2006 W22 Chassis Sea Breeze LX 8321 or something similar. Mine has died, and the garage is having considerable difficulties finding a replacement. Apparently the motor manufacturer, like National itself, has gone out of business. So does anybody know of a replacement by a different manufacturer that will work?

Many thanks.

Thanks to both Richard and Jim. Denso does seem to have exactly the item in the catalog--there is one distributor, someplace in Oregon, but at least I've got something to work with. Thanks Again!

Also check with Walts RV Supplies in Rialto, Ca he bought overstock items from National and Fleetwood, when they were in business.

I have just been through 3 weeks of working on a wiper problem with my 2005 Dolphin. I was thinking that the motor was bad, but if the wipers work on HI the motor is good. During a rainy trip (my maiden voyage) they worked fine until I tried to shut them off and they wouldnít. When I shut off the engine they wouldnít park, so I had to fiddle with them to park in the correct spot. Returning home it started to rain again, (I hate it when that happens) the wipers would only work on HI and wouldnít park. I made it home and started to look for the wiper module, some posts I read said I didnít have one others said I did, no-one told me where to look for it. Itís under the fuse panel on your dash, in line with your steering column aluminum and blue aluminum in color, looks like an audio component. 3Ē square 1 plug and LEDís P R N D 3 2 1 on it, this threw me off. I found it after pulling apart the whole steering column looking for one. I did a lot searching on the Internet without any luck; I also stopped at a RV dealer he looked it up and gave me a showed me a sketch of it, since I hadnít seen anything that looked like what he had shown me I didnít order it. After more attempts I did locate it under the fuse panel in the dash. I ordered a wiper module from workhorseservice.com/ in Birmingham, AL. Nice people to deal with that will steer you in the right direction when you ask and the pricing is lower than local retailers.

Good Luck

Thanks to everybody for the information! Not only did I find the source for the motor, but I picked up a lot of other useful tips as well!

Incidentally, when I first got the unit three years ago I too had that notorious problem of the wipers continuing to run after I turned them off. Had to pull the fuse, but after putting it back in sometime later the problem did not return, and hasn't returned since.

Thanks to all again,

The mysterious wiper run on issue is usually caused by moisture inside the power connector to the wiper motor, it hangs down in front and is exposed to driving rain while the coach is moving, when it shorts out you can't turn it off until you shut off the key switch. Once off it stays off until you turn it on again. To fix this disconnect , clean and seal the connector with silicone or dielectric grease. No problem since. rshinva it makes sense your problem went away, your installed must have disconnected then properly reconnected and sealed your wiper motor connection during the repair. Bonus!
